justice john roberts, jr. the public swearing-in and all the pomp and circumstance that go with it were put off until today and what a day it is. the temperature right now is in the high 30s. the sky is clear, a brilliant winter's day in the nation's capital. people are pouring into the national mall to witness a day of history. the first family began the day by attending services at st. john's church. that's right across the street from the white house. that's a long-standing tradition for presidents on inauguration day. joining me now in our cbs coverage is bob schieffer, our chief washington correspondent and anchor of ""face the nation."" bob, what are you expecting to see? >> well, it's going to be an important day for the nation, but i must say, you know, the fiscal cliff negotiations, the slaughter of those children in connecticut made it difficult for washington to be festive this time around. it's also a very unusual atmosphere because of this gridlock. i mean, you're not hearing people talk about hope and renewal this time around, but is the government broken? the whole system
at the schedule of events today. at 8:45, the president will be attending a church service at st. john's episcopal church right around the corner from the white house. the swearing in ceremony begins at approximately 11:20 this morning. we will be live at with all that. after the inaugural, the president will have lunch in the u.s. capitol with dignitaries and congressional leaders. that begins at about 1:00. we'll show you as much of that as we can. the parade itself from the capitol to the white house will begin at approximately 2:45. the inaugural balls will get started at about 8:45. all of that will be live on our schedule today. as we mentioned, we want to hear from you as well. we will put the numbers up on the screen -- we will take your calls, tweets, etc.. you can go ahead and dial in right now. hundreds of tweets already at #inaug2013. these are folks trying to get through security. here is what some of them say. -- hannah says -- ann says -- there is quick to win out there this morning. -- wind out there this morning. chesley says -- chelsea says -- ian -- the front page of "the new yo
states sits in when he attends a service at st. john's on most regular church occasions. it is marked with a brass plaque to let everyone know it is the president's pue. not always does he sit here. when off special occasion where protocol dictates, a special service of some kind or a funeral or a memorial service of some kind the president will sit in the front on the left of the center section, number 62. when president obama was inaugurated in 2009 he sat in the front, number 62, not regular because of the nature of the occasion. if you're talking about a regular church service the president will come through the entrance, walk down the aisle, sit here and be part of the as will notice, has embossed upon it, st. john's church. this book of common prayer was used by presidents of forward until it was taken out of service and a new edition was published in 1880's. in 1961, when a service was planned at st. john's to recognize the first attendance, this was found in the archives. it was discussed with chief leaders. they said it would be a good idea to have every president still livin
in the sense he's playing the republicans well. and he's, as john has been pointing out, you know, his approval ratings are up. he's looking, you know, he boxed them in on the fiscal cliff. he got what he wanted out of that basically. he's done well with his appointme appointments. he's going to get chuck hagel approved, i think. he's going to get some victories. but i worry whether he's doing this in a way that seems host still to republicans and whether for the big -- he's going to win battles but will he win the war? is he going to lose the war by being so tough. >> david, republicans are so unpopular right now, 26% approval according to some polls, that's an advantage for this president. and he's also found a division of labor, sort of like a good marriage, who takes out the garbage. well, he has joe biden to deal with the people he doesn't want to deal with, right? >> if we look back at the end of the next year, we'll get an answer to that. kuz he get a grand bargain, significant immigration through, serious gun reform through. it's too early to judge. we don't know whether -- the republic
of john brennan it to be defense secretary appeared next is a call to is watching us. caller: i just wanted to call and get my comments on today's ceremony. it is very moving. i did not vote for mr. obama. i hope he surrounds himself with people that we give him counsel. he was hoping we would come together, works for the next four years. the most moving part was beyonce's singing of the national anthem. i hope we can go forward as one nation. >> she writes the benediction is lovely but what about separation of church and state? next is a call from santiago. i thought president obama's speech was really good. agree with james taylor and beyonce. their performances were great. he did not talk about bipartisanship and he should have. host: the speech was clocked in at just over 18 minutes. next is a call from gary. caller: thank you for letting me call. i was very impressed with its. it is a good day for us all to come together. it is a very special shout out you were finishing the national anthem. they started ripping the president's, his agenda, his speech. this is fairly biased news
the start of his second term in prayer. our white house correspondent brianna keilar is outside st. john's church. that's right near the white house. our chief white house correspondent jessica yellin is on the national mall. brianna, let's go to you first. tell us what's going on. what is about to happen? >> reporter: hi there, wolf. i am across from the church where president obama and mrs. obama are inside sitting, not in the traditional president's pew, but in the first row, as is the vice president and his family, and i want to show you, if this bus will move behind me, you can see over here the presidential limousine, the beast. once this service is over and we are told that it will be short and sweet, the beast is standing ready to whisk president obama and mrs. obama off to the capitol. >> brianna, thank you. let's go to jessica yellin. jessica, i understand you're learning some details about what the president will say. >> reporter: one insider insisted to me, wolf, that there is no challenge to be met today, no political test, but president obama considers this speech deeply me
but an article written by john dickerson, the political news, the cbs political director. powerful position. he wrote for slate magazine, i believe on friday or saturday. he used terms like obama must go for the throat of the g.o.p. he said they must pulverize the republicans, delegitimize his opponents, declare war on republicans. there is a picture. that is the. guy hold on. that is exactly what greg just said. the media allows the left to divide and concur, that is what they have seen. >> bob: he didn't use the word. he didn't say entitlement need to be there for people who paid in there but he left it wide open and need to change it for people who are younger. my own prediction is something like a saving plan. >> dana: i'm surprised because that is not what i took away on the entitlement thing. i'm skipping around here. going to the collection action sound bite the you have that and then get to martin luther king thoughts in a minute. run that first one, the collective action comment. >> we always understood when times change, so must we. if i dellty to the founding principles requires new
second term administration. the president was officially sworn in by chief justice john roberts yesterday at the blue room at the white house as the first lady and the obama daughters looked on. but in the little less than two hours the president will affirm that oath before a much larger crowd with 100% more pomp and an equal proportion of circumstance. we have a stellar group of guests joining us throughout the day. honestly, to cut to the chase, it is pretty much everybody you know from msnbc. plus, visits with some members of the obama administration, folks from congress, we'll have live reports from the capitol and all along the parade route. and who knows what surprises along the way. it will be a fun day. reverend al sharpton and chris hayes are joining us onset as the day goes along. alongside me are melissa maris perry, ed schultz and the one and only chris matthews. mr. matthews, this is, i think of this as chris christmas. >> i think of the alternative it could be today. john bolden becoming secretary of state, the coke brothers up on the podium with donald trump, it is not tha
democrats to vote in favor of it. it marks the second time now that house speaker john boehner has broken his own rule, the boehner rule, model on the hastert rule. said the speaker would not bring any bill to the floor for a vote that does not have the support of a majority of his conference, a majority of the majority, it's known as. but last night, just about 20% of the republican conference voted for the bill. the vote split the leadership, majority leader eric cantor, majority whip mccarthy voted for the bill. boehner first broke his rule on new year's day when he allowed a vote to avert the fiscal cliff on taxes. apparently there's an addendum to the boehner rule. the majority of the majority, unless the country is on the verge of a tax crisis, or chris christie has access the to a megaphone. christie made sure this week that republicans knew he would use it. >> and i'll say again, new jersey does not expect anything more than what was done for louisiana and alabama and mississippi and if they want to make new rules about disasters, they picked the wrong state to make the new rules
up to the podium, is the president. we saw the first family walking in to st. john's church earlier this morning. >> they're at that worship service right now. there they are, right there, just before they walked into st. john's episcopal church, across the street from the white house. there's the first lady, and the president, sasha and malia, and the first lady's mom. luis leon is preaching on the theme of unity, which is also the president's theme. we'll see the president and first lady when they come out of that service, in just a little bit. first, let's talk to david muir. he's on the shadow of the steps of the capitol. and a lot of people gathering already. >> gathering here since the darkdar darkened hours before the sun came up. you talked about the choir of p.s. 22. you can see the capitol behind me, for those of you watching at home. the archway that the president will emerge from, about midway, at 11:30 this morning. his hand on the two bibles that george mentioned. applause for the children who traveled here all the way from new york. my producer, christine has the temp
. >>> ahead this morning, we talk to illinois congresswoman tami duckworth. randy forbes, john eustis and twist beatz. wednesday, january 16th. "starting point" begins right now. >> welcome, everybody. let's begin with breaking news. a developing story out of london, where a helicopter hit a crane and crashed into a construction site near a busy commuter hub. it all happened during rush hour. two people confirmed dead. two more taken to area hospitals, and we are live at the scene of the crash in london. erin, give us a sense of what's happened, and what's happening now? >> hi, soledad, what we can piece together from various eyewitnesss we have been speaking to. around 7:45 this morning, very foggy morning here in london, a helicopter flying very low and very fast according to one eyewitness, collided with a -- with a 50-story residential tower called st. georges wharf, being under construction when the helicopter collided with the crane, a crane, at the construction site. it went spiralling down to the ground according to one eyewitness, making a very loud bang when it hit the groun
of the hopes and dreams of people across the country who knew can do better. i hope they recognize that john kerry and john edwards will be the team that can help us do better. >> how did you decide what to put in, what to leave out of your speech? i have been in a number of conversations this week center speech. people are trying to analyze what you did and did not say. i felt for you because it is unfortunate in many respects that if you win, you'll be the only african-american in the u.s. senate, you have to be all things to all people. how do you do a speech where you have to remain authentically black for those black folks in chicago and the south side who know you and at the same time, your the face of the party? -- you are the face the pot -- face of the party? >> i tried to remind people i am rooted in the african-american community but not bound by it. that applies to the speech and my politics. when i tried to pass a bill that is boosting the wages of low- wage workers, that helps everybody, but disproportionately, black folks are low wage. if i am working on people who are not ins
's leadership. so, you're negative. the market is not. whole foods chief john macky, a little hot water after comments he made in a radio interview on obamacare. what he said, technically speaking it's more like fascism, socialism is where the government owns the means of production, in fascism the government doesn't own the means of production, but they control it and that's what's happening with our health care program. mackie says he regrets using the word fascism and clarified on fox and friends. >> mostly i was trying to describe obamacare, free enterprise capitalism which allows value tri exchange between businesses and individuals and it's the basis for prosperity in america, and allows innovation, creativity, freedom of choice. we're moving away from that, so, trying to let people see that that's probably not going to be as effective as if capitalism itself was allowed to work in the marketplace. stuart: that's interesting, government controlled health care. let's bring in da doctor, a specialist, as i said, you're a specialist, okay? under obamacare, what hoops do patients have to ju
john roberts. >> please raise your right hand and repeat after me. i, barack hussein obama do solemnly swear. >> i barack hussein obama do solemnly swear that i will faithfully execute the office of president of the united states and will to the best of my ability preserve, protect, and defend the constitution of the united states, so help me god. >> congratulations, mr. president. >> 3 activist groups have received permission to protest president obama along the route of the nrk parade. the anti-war group answers says it expects -- we will have more on the inauguration after headlines. alice four people have been killed in u.s. drone strike inside yemen. yemeni government says the attack of four militants but the claim has not been independently verified. the attack comes one day after those of anger of the drone attacks blocked a main road linking the targeted town with the capital. the obama administration meanwhile reportedly has decided to exclude cia drone strikes in pakistan from new legal oversight for targeted killings overseas. the washington post reports counter-terrorism ad
three days before john f. kennedy was sworn in. here is a portion from his farewell address. >> crisis there will continue to be. in meeting them whether foreign or domestic, great or small, there is a temptation to feel could become to all our difficulties. development of unrealistic programs to cure every ill in agriculture. a dramatic expansion in research. these and many other possibilities, each possibly promising may be suggested as the only way to the road we wish to travel. but each proposal must be weighed in the light of a broader consideration, the need to maintain balance in and among national programs. balance between the private and the public economy, balance between the cost and hoped for advantages, balance between the clearly necessary and the comfortably desireable, balance between our essential requirements as a nation and the duties imposed by the nation upon the individual, balance between actions of the moment and the national welfare of the future. good judgment seeks balance in progress, lack of it eventually finds imbalance and frustration. >> words of preside
yesterday. >> i barack hussein obama swear -- >> supreme court justice john roberts swore in the first family. justice sotomayor did the honor at the vice president's residence at the united states naval observe tore in washington. >> and both families attended a church service at the episcopal church directly opposite the white house. moments ago the limousine carrying the obamas and the bidens arrived at the capital after the 12 block trip up pennsylvania avenue from the white house. >> joining us, our news hour regular column younist mark shields and new york sometimes columnist mark brooks. >> big day, gwen. it is a big day. it lacks the inherent drama and expense of the new first inaugural. this is important. i think it's a defining moment for the second inaugural, the president at the top of his popularity over the past three years and this is a chance to lay out what he wants to do, i think, in broad terms and specifically of course in the the state of the union. >> what do you say about the second inaugural? >> it's a ritual. there's a lot of celebrities in the crowd. i learned
the speech. something we'll be discussing later with john lewis. it's an added emotional contact. >> absolutely. the civil rights movement created the possibility for barack obama to become president and i think he's ever mindful of that. i think that's where that community organizing comes in him. he knows that communities create the power. you think about the gay rights movement, the civil rights movement, the women's movement, this is all part of who he is and i think it's part of american history. when i look at american history, those movements are critical in transforming our attitudes about ourselves and about one another. and that's where real change takes place. lincoln said, you control public sentiment, controls everything. even if they can't control my voice. >> sometimes when historians try to speak too much in the course of one inaugural weekend, this is what happens. we're going to allow doris rest her voice for a second. you saw when we were talking a motorcade and you'd be forgiven for thinking there's the president on the move from the white house. it was not. f

about their viewpoint on how to reduce gun violence are john mccarthy and glenn ivy. you both co-wrote an opinion piece that appeared in the "washington post," and you had your own set of recommendations for gun violence. let's start with universal background checks and the majority of americans who have been polled agree with. right now 40% of guns are sold out background checks. talk about how closing that loophole would help. >> we have got almost -- not quite half but a lot of people who slipped through and there is no background check, so you can have felons buying guns and terrorists buying guns at the gun shows and that doesn't make any sense, to avoid a loophole i think expanding the coverage and making sure you do background checks across the board is just completely reasonable. >> john? >> obviously, we have been speaking about the fact that we think the gun show loophole where there is no background checks at all, and we would like to see that any gun purchased would be subject to a background check. and specifically it's really the thoroughness of the background check
of a news conference at johns hopkins university. that is live now on c-span2 that has been underway for about an hour. we will try to go to carl in vegas, nevada. the house is about to come in. make it quick. caller: i want to talk about gun control. they do not need a gun that they can shoot and kill someone from 5 miles away. it does not help them. they do not need to go out and hunt with a game -- a gun like that. they keep it for one reason only -- so they can protect themselves against the government. that's what it's all about. host: "the new york times" editorial today weighing in saying the white house has a rare chance to propose and pushed through an agenda for public safety. the assault weapon ban should be renewed and tightened with a special emphasis on those that hold more than 10 rounds. offered by our chaplain, father conroy. chaplain conroy: let us pray. god of the universe, we give us thanks for giving us another day. the people's house gathers today and celebrates in its gathering the wonder of our constitutional form of government. our nation has once ag

"the washington post." term as the most visible publichis face has appeared on moreyour thoughts? guest: because it is an important point -- the first part of what you read, the

"morning joe" starts right now. >> hey, baby! f >> we must make the choices to reduce the cost of health care and the size of our deficit. but we reject the belief america must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation that will build its futur future. >> the commits we make with medicare and social security, these things do not sap our nation, they strengthen us. they do not make us a nation of takers, they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >> wow, look at the crowd. this is a full bar the day after all the natural balls. i'm not sure what's going on her
faithfully. >> when chief justice john roberts administered the oath to barack obama on january 20, 2009, there was a major problem. roberts was supposed to say "i will faithfully execute the office of president of the united states. " barack obama stopped and paused and smiled as if to say, come on, man, this is my big day. you have to get this right. unfortunately, he did not get it right so the very next night in the white house, they did it again. this time roberts used notes which he had not used the first time and they got it right. >> we walk for the history of democracy's big day monday at 8:00 a.m. and again at 8:00 p.m. eastern. this is part of a three-day holiday weekend on c-span 2's book-tv. >> the greatest honor history can bestow is the title of peacemaker. this honor now beckons america, the chance to lead the world at last out of the valley of turmoil and onto that high ground of peace that man has dreamed of since the dawn of civilization >> must embark on new programs, scientific investments and the improvement of underdeveloped areas. >> of this weekend, public radio'
, if john boehner and mitch mcconnell think that they can come up with a plan that somehow meets their criteria that they've set for why they will -- when they will raise the debt ceiling, they're free to go ahead and try. but the proposals that they've put forward in order to accomplish that -- only by cutting spending -- means cuts to things like medicare and education that the american people profoundly reject. now, if they think that they can get that through congress, then they're free to try. but i think that a better way of doing this is go ahead and say, we're going to pay our bills. the question now is how do we actually get our deficit in a manageable, sustainable way? and that's a conversation i'm happy to have. all right. matt spetalnick. >> thank you, sir. you've spoken extensively about the debt ceiling debate, but some republicans have further said that they're willing to allow a government shutdown to take place rather than put off deep spending cuts. are you prepared to allow the government to grind to a halt if you disagree with the spending cut proposals they p
will hear from a constitutional law professor adam winkler. from the johns hopkins school of public health in baltimore. this is about 20 minutes. >> he is certainly one of the great emerging voices, insightful and influential of the nature of the meaning of the second amendment in the wake of the supreme court's decision, so thank you for joining me in this effort. i want to thank the organizers, everyone from the president down to staff that has organized a terrific and hopefully impact full conference. i am not going to talk with any power. as a law professor i do not like the focus on anyone but me. i am here to talk about the amendment to the constitution and what it says about major reform proposals being considered in the wake of the new town massacre. as you probably know, the second amendment provides a well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to bear arms shall not be infringed. it is almost as if james madison just discovered this wonderful new thing, the comma, and wanted to put it in there as many times as possible, and is
